, on what happened over in libya, in benghazi on that night where four brave americans died. well, now we know that there was a coverup as well because they had redacted, they crossed out all the stuff. then finally we got to see it. yesterday the white house press corps had it up to here. they realized they had been lied to for over a year and it even came down to where jay carney, who apparently is not paid enough because he tries to do a good job for the administration, he said that the benghazi memo that they prepared for susan rice before she went out on the sundayç shows, it wasn't about benghazi, even though at the top of it it said "benghazi." here's jonathan carl. >> you knew full well what susan rice primarily was going to be asked about was the attack, terrorist attack on a u.s. consolate. ambassador rice went on those shows and said the attack in benghazi was rooted in protests over an internet video. we now know that was not true. >> i would point you to what mike morrell said repeatedly in testimony about the?x(áqpáion of the talking points. >> morrell said last month, w

on september 11th, 2012, in benghazi, libya. four americans murdered by a coordinated terror attack. most likely from an al qaeda affiliate. not one person has been brought to justice in the attack. not one. five days after the murders, u.n. ambassador susan rice said this to the world. the information, the best information and the best assessment we have today is that, in fact, this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack, that what happened initially was it was a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired in cairo as a consequence of the video. >> that was not true. that was not even close to being true. and a variety of people told the white house it was not true. yet, ambassador rice said what she said. yesterday, the watchdog group judicial watch released the damning truth which it procured through the freedom of information act. a memo written by senior white house advisor ben rhodes dated september 14th says that ms. rice was prepped to, quote: underscore that these protests are rooted in an internet video and not a broader failure of policy. again, that despite cia people

a hearing thursday on libya and the 2012 benghazi consulate attack. >> did the script a line for you? >> in retrospect i wish they had the late julianne share who led the nasa relations with the outside world in many ways was absolutely adamant that headquarters never put words in the mouths of their people, not just the astronauts but anybody and to let people speak for themselves. they made it known what the line was and the nasa position was but beyond that to my knowledge controlled the statements, public statements of others and certainly they insisted on it. senate republicans blocked efforts to advance a bill to raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $10.10 an hour over 30 months. senator bob corker from tennessee was the only republican to vote for the measure. up next a senate debate on that bill. it's an hour and 50 minutes. >> mr. president by rice is going to talk about the matter before us which is the minimum wage. today the senate will vote cloture to proceed to the minimum wage fairness act which would increase the minimum wage to $10.10 an hour over the

. this is three days after 9/11 when four americans, including the american ambassador to libya, are killed. everybody in the chain has said it's a terrorist attack, everyone in the chain is saying there's no protest. and yet this e-mail, if we're to believe jay carney at the white house, had nothing to do with benghazi. it was more about the broad scope of the region. now, imagine that. what are they going to ask about on five sunday talk shows when you have four americans who were killed just days before? they're not going to ask about the other protests that didn't see any americans killed. they're going to ask about that. so then he said that the reason they didn't originally put forward this e-mail to the committee -- they eventually got it to the committee redacted -- was because it didn't deal with benghazi. now, that really strains k-- ab did tremendous reporting on this -- >> we're going to -- we're preparing that right now. this is all breaking at the moment. we're going to have that in a minute, bret. but i want to just go back for a moment and talk about how this e-mail actually
